I shall test it on my S80 (firmware version 1.01).

Can anyone please advise how to load and run DISKBOOT.BIN on S80?

The wiki has a page about how to make a SD card bootable:
http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Bootable_SD_card

The short version is (assuming you have a SD card that's under 4GB and is formatted to FAT16), you just run the following linux command:
echo -n BOOTDISK | dd bs=1 count=8 seek=64 of=/dev/sdx
where /dev/sdx is the SD device (in my case it was /dev/sdc when I inserted the SD card to reader).

The other way I also tried was: I have another camera (SD700) which is already supported under CHDK. So I used that camera to make the SD card bootable. Once it's bootable, you can copy DISKBOOT.BIN of any other camera.

(firmware version 1.01).
CHDK is not ported yet to s80 with firmware version 1.01(letter).

Right, the current port is for firmware 1.00G. Is there a firmware update to 1.01 somewhere?

So the current version will not work on firmware 1.01?  May be I need to downgrade to 1.00g  >:(

You can always have a try, maybe it will work. CHDK is a software, so it won't permanently change your firmware. If it doesn't work, just pop the SD card out, and there is nothing to worry about.

I am looking at movie_rec.c to enable optical zoom during video shooting. Currently when I hook the tMovieReco task, the camera crashes a few seconds after I switch to movie shooting mode. But here is something I found interesting: if I *comment out* the hooking of tMovieReco task, then I discovered I can actually perform optical zoom during standard video shooting. But to do that, I need to first press zoom out (if I press zoom in first, it will become digital zoom). Is it standard, or is this just something accidental with s80?

Also, this only works for standard video shooting (640x480). s80 has high resolution option (1024x768) but the optical zoom described above does not work for this mode. It seems this has to do with the availability of digital zoom in normal (non-CHDK) camera mode: no digital zoom is available for 1024x768 shooting. So is it that if a camera supports digital zoom during video shooting, the optical zoom can always be enabled even if tMovieRec is not hooked? That sounds odd to me. Any idea?

What software did you use to open RAW files? I used Irfanview on Windows, and also tried UFRaw in linux. Both of them work with the RAW files I captured with my s80.
